ECONOMICS: - In studying economics you will learn how individuals and society make choices about how scarce resources are used, what products are produced and who gets to consume them. These choices depend on evaluating costs, benefits, risks and effects on others. Economics at Glasgow dates back to Adam Smith, who was a Professor at the University in the 18th century and is widely renowned as the father of modern economics. RUSSIAN: - A degree in Russian will allow you to study a language of strategic international significance, as well as giving you access to the richness of Russian culture. Glasgow has a long history of teaching Russian and Slavonic languages and the resources available in our library are truly world-class.
